As a student of The War Between The States, I read the unfolding of events as presented in this book with enthusiasm and sincere appreciation. Mr. Wittenberg's detailed and thorough research was apparent from the outset and provides the basis for a compelling insight to a battle largely overlooked in the closing weeks of the war. The depth and breadth of his research shows throughout the book as much of the information presented is not found elsewhere. A superb collection of maps and photographs adds real value to the author's presentation. Mr. Wittenberg's liberal use of quotes from those involved allows a splendid look at the men at war in each army in a personal and candid manner. His extraordinary ability to portray many of the participants, from privates to generals, is top notch. No movie could do better in this regard. Mr. Wittenberg has shown himself as a first rate historian and an equally fine writer with this work which will stand the test of time.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
